Poorly Executed Police Shooting

Dash cam footage retrieved from Officer Amy Wilburn's patrol vehicle which was recorded during the shooting incident in which she was involved at 9500 Military Parkway on December 9th, 2013.

The following account is summarized from the Internal Affairs investigation.

All radio transmissions indicated that the suspect vehicle was occupied by multiple individuals. Officer Wilburn transmitted over the radio she had observed multiple suspects passing her location and these suspects matched the description given by fellow officers.

At no time after the vehicle was located did officers lose sight of the vehicle, nor broadcast that any suspect had exited the vehicle until another officer reported that the driver of the vehicle fled on foot. The video shows Officer Wilburn did not conduct a felony "high risk" traffic stop to clear or challenge the vehicle, which reportedly contained multiple suspects who were possibly armed.

Officer Wilburn is seen running to the vehicle and not maintaining distance or taking the time a reasonable officer would while approaching a vehicle with armed suspects. Officer Wilburn approached the vehicle alone after two other officers began to chase the driver of the suspect vehicle on foot. Officer Wilburn approached the vehicle without proper cover or with her weapon at the ready position. A reasonable officer in fear for their safety would not have approached a vehicle containing possible armed suspects in this manner.

Officer Wilburn opened the driver's side door of the still moving vehicle, observed Mr. Kelvion Walker in the passenger seat and immediately drew and fired her weapon. As she approached the passenger door where Mr. Walker was seated, she exposed herself to a possibly armed suspect, an action which a reasonable officer in fear for their safety would not have done.

Officer Wilburn dropped her weapon in the car before running to the passenger side. In the video, a second officer is seen reaching into the vehicle, removing Officer Wilburn's gun and handing it to her over the roof of the car.

Officer Wilburn thenholstered her gun and failed to stay on target as a reasonable officer would have with a potentially armed and dangerous suspect. Mr. Walker stated he had his hands in the air when Officer Wilburn approached the vehicle and was not resisting nor reaching for anything.

An independent witness who observed the entire incident stated Mr. Walker had his hands up in the air the entire time, indicating surrender, and did not lower his hands until he was shot. After the shooting incident, a search was made of the vehicle and no weapons or contraband were found in the location.

Officer shoots an unarmed man with his hands in the air then drops her gun right next to him.

I'm sorry you`ve had the kind of experience that leaves you withthat opinion of the police. I`ve said for years that a$$h0les come in all shapes and sizes and you`ll find them in all walks of life. That, of course, includes members of the police force. I`ve also had personal experience with the police, including a time when I was stopped because they were looking for someone who
got away in a car that looked like mine. In every case, so far, the officer was courteous and respectful, and comported himself in a professional fashion, so my opinion of them is rather better than what you were left with.

paperduck, pick on me all you want....I can take it ;) Yes I did say Van Mom was responsible, but she shot a passenger, not the driver. How responsible for where a car goes is the passenger?

I have no doubt it's a thug in that car. But she shot him point blank out of panic. That`s just not good police work!

I've dealt with police personally. My house was broken into, full hand prints were clearly visible on the window that was broken into. It was winter, and there were also footprints leading to the window. The officer said...

Write down everything that was stolen and we will "keep an eye out for it". riiiight.

The ONLY thing a police officer wants to do is exercise force on people, barring that, they don`t give a flying f*** what happens to you.

Personally, I find that debate goes a long way in mitigating boredom. Aside from that, I completely agree with both of your comments.

So nice of you to be nasty in your first ever post. You're also wrong, Ogen is correct. Take another look at the video - the driver clearly bolted and ran. The person remaining in the car, then, was the passenger. Unless you think the passenger jumped out the driver`s seat while the driver squeezed past him/her and into the passenger seat at the same time. So who was being retarded, here?
